I hate playing with my three year old. :(
I try to do things with him that we both enjoy, and even things that I hate that I know he enjoys, but my body just gives out and I can only play with him for about 15 minutes at a time. He's my only child, I'm a SAHM, and I feel like I'm neglecting him.
Our days are spent reading, watching movies, playing cars, cleaning, and workbooks. What else can I do? Am I the only one that thinks it's boring to play with my child? I feel so guilty. :(
No, I do not have PPD. I have some health problems, but not PPD. I used to enjoy my son, but now it's almost like the only child syndrome has taken over, and I just can't deal with it anymore.
Also, I don't have a car during the day. We only have one car, and my husband needs it to get to work, which is an hour away. We can go to parks and things like that, but the weather has been horrible since October, so we don't get out much. Maybe that alone is our problem. Over the summer we had a 2nd vehicle and we got out of the house every day, and we were both much happier.
Thank you all for the advice! I do feel less guilty about the whole thing. I do wish we could do something different though.
